Reverse racism isn't real. No, really.
The "reverse racism" card is often pulled by white people when people of color call out racism and discrimination, or create spaces for themselves (think BET) that white people aren't a part of. The impulse behind the reverse racism argument seems to be a desire to prove that people of color don't have it that bad, they're not the only ones that are put at a disadvantage or targeted because of their race. It's like the Racism Olympics. And it's patently untrue.
It really all comes down to semantics. At some point, the actual meaning of "racism" got mixed up with other aspects of racism -- prejudice, bigotry, ignorance, and so on. It's true: White people can experience prejudice from black people and other non-whites. Black people can have ignorant, backwards ideas about white people, as well as other non-white races. No one is trying to deny that. But racism is far more complex.
Before you cry outrage and send me a nasty email about how reverse racist this article is, calm down. Listen.

An article from the Huffington Post holds no creditability. They are far from being a reputable source. OP this thread is only going to cause people to fight.

Can't we all just set down and watch the game with some nice cold drinks and barbecue?

It makes no sense to me. Racism is still racism regardless of the race. I hate when African-Americans claim that they can't be racist and only white or any other race can. Just my opinion and nothing more.

Blacks themselves are more racist than white people so whatever.

Another example of: "Let's change the definition of something entirely (racism) to suit our needs..... and when it doesn't work out (when white people aren't racist by this definition), we'll change it back."

It baffles me that black people can even claim they they cannot be racist. And it isn't even based on fact, but rather an alternate definition created by black people to defend against such accusations.

Look, I can do it, too:

Racism is only racism when a race is enslaved, therefore, I am NOT a racist simply because I use the term "nigger."

(I actually do NOT use that term, I am simply making my point.)

Yeah, I really don't think this thread is for here. Not that the discussion doesn't need to be had, I just think there are better platforms for things like this.

racism is racism regardless of race, so there is no such thing as reverse racism.

Wait, wait, wait...

So, the darker your skin is, the less racist you are?

Holy shit, I'm racist.
